“In fact, the western alliance has far more motive to stage such an attack and frame Russia for it than Russia has for attempting to assassinate an ex-spy who has been strategically irrelevant for years.”

You are either ignorant of, or are deliberately ignoring Putin’s public vow, when Sergei Skripal defected, that “Traitors will kick the bucket.”

It is far more likely that Russia did exactly what it promised, using a Russian Government-manufactured nerve poison, than that any other government was involved. They have form for bizarre James Bond style assassinations on Western soil. Does Polonium ring any bells?
